cabbage soup…..

hey 🙂  hope your all well and enjoying some nice autumnal weather…..im still eating soups due to my jaw problem but im having fun with it….im gonna lose a few lbs (hopefully lol) for my hubby getting home from work in a month or two so the challenge is on with a few of my girlfriends were doing workouts everyday and eating healthy as usual but as im eating soups i have to switch things up a bit …..this recipe is for the “cabbage soup diet” which is a ridiculous diet if u ask me your body needs all sorts to keep healthy not just soup (try telling my dentist that lmao)  but i really love the soup so if i can have yummy soup then thats all i care about….also i sometimes add a handful of wholewheat mini pasta shapes or even break up spaghetti into it for a filling meal 🙂   so if your losing weight or just fancy some soup here it is …….

 

ingredients for serving 4 people:  you need a really big pot if not then just cut the recipe down

  • 1/2 white cabbage chopped into chunks
  • 2 carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 ribs of celery chopped
  • 1 bell pepper chopped (any colour)
  • handful chopped mushrooms 
  • 1 leek chopped
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1ltr vegetable stock or bouillon 
  • salt and pepper to taste

method:

  1. throw all your chopped veg and stock into a pot along with the tomatoes and simmer foe an hour to an hour and a half giving it a stir every so often to make sure it doesn’t stick to the pot and taste then add your salt and pepper according to taste. 
  2. once its ready it will keep in the fridge for a couple days or freeze in portions for use when you feel like some soup 🙂 

you can add chili powder or some hot sauce if you like too, i don’t usually but from time to time i like to spice things up 🙂
